Six Sided Pillow Box


#1

I’m sure we’ve all seen the semi-rectangular pillow boxes with the curved tabs at the ends folded over each other.

Of course I’ve gotta take it a step further… Six sides baby! Ignore that score in the middle, I was pre-planning for a taco-shaped pillow box, that one didnt work out. :smiley:


#2

Most excellent!! Please continue to attempt the taco shaped box…cuz…Well, you know… Tacos!! :yum:


#3

Oh I just got it figured out, but it’s 180 degrees out of proper orientation LOL.

So, OK yeah that’s not really figured out I guess. LOL. I’m 'bout to hit the button on the first iteration. hahahaha!!


#4

Very cool! I also want to see a tacobox. :grinning:


#5

Your :glowforge: is on fire!!


#6

It’s more like a bananapillow… :smiley:


#7

You know you could make little disposable banananana (sorry got on a roll there) split containers for a picnic out of those. :sunglasses:


#8

It’s probably the angle, but the third photo in your banana box series looks like a hull model. A nautical themed gift shop would find value in a hull model pillow box. Overall I think you’re having too much fun. :laughing:


#9

Ok. I’m going to start making noise here. I love MakForge, but it’s just not capable of doing this low power work. I want my Forever Forge!

This is so cool.


#10

Hahaha! I showed the bananananaboat to a family member today and was met with a sigh, and “You need to find a job.” :smiley:


#11

That last photo looks a lot like a fry holder at Wendy’s. ha


#12

I never thought I would want to do this, until…Pictures…

Nice!


#13

They just don’t understand your art!


#14

Looks more like an anvil pillow, to me!


#15

Yeah…it does look like that!


#16

Hmm an anvil pillow… now there’s a product combination that might make a million if it could be figured out… “So soft you can sleep on it, So tough you can drop it on a coyote”

You should check out these two free resource books, they have a big assortment of packaging layouts, I have hand made a couple before and they work great, though looking forward to being able to laser cut them and avoid the tedious hand cutting and folding.
